If this is the new lazy, then I want to be lazy. This is kind of like a zen guy. One that knows that planning is very important. This reminds me of Stephen Covey, the author of Seven Habits of highly effective people, he says that everything is created twice, one when planned and the 2nd time when executed. An efficient person may seem lazy from the outside but the thing is that many that seem hyper-active are really with pending items. This kind of lazy requires a very well organized mind. This lazy is good. Seek thy lazy state if you will.

@David and @hm: Really, lazy is the right word. Much problem solving creativity springs from this foundation.

@David: I agree with you. Why redefine lazy? Why not search for more enriched word or coin new word?

Lazy has bad connotations. "Efficient" would probably be a better word to use?

Reminds me of Larry Wall's Three Virtues of a Programmer (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Larry_Wall#Virtues_of_a_programmer ): Laziness, Impatience, Hubris.

It doesn't seem all that long ago when I was a bright-eyed, bushy-tailed young engineer. Now I feel like an old fool, but where are we going to find one at this time of the day (LOL)?
